Create Time

The start time of the task or subtask.

End Time

The end time of the task or subtask. If the task is not yet complete, this field is blank.

Owner

The entity that launched the task or subtask. Tasks launched by the system are labelled as system. Tasks launched by a user are labelled by username.

Users with the User role can only see tasks that they launch themselves. Users with the Administrator role can see all tasks including system tasks and tasks launched by other users.

Status

The status of the task or subtask:

  • Pending - The task or subtask has been created.

  • Received - The task or subtask has been received by the microservice that will execute it.

  • Started - The task or subtask has started but has not finished.

  • Success - The task or subtask has finished successfully.

  • Finished - The task has finished but at least one subtask has failed.

  • Failure - The task or subtask has failed.

Note: The proNX Optical Director has no control over how long a device takes to complete a task. In some situations, the proNX Optical Director might time out and mark a task as failed. Since the proNX Optical Director does not cancel a task when it times out, the device can continue to complete the task successfully. If the task details of a failed task indicate the failure is due to a timeout, be sure to double check to determine whether the task has indeed failed or not.

Details

An explanation of the task or subtask.
